    Jewel got a reaction from Nikki in Sonnet battery cover lifespan   
    @Nikki
    I have been pleased with the performance of the PowerOne implant plus batteries that came in my kit. So I purchased a box of that brand on Amazon just in case. The disposables work a bit over 2 days for me. I usually use them when I'm travelling overseas or going to all day functions where I don't want to have to change batteries mid-way 
    Since rechargeables are so expensive I may just use disposables whenever my rechargeables give out. I get about 9 hours from the rechargeables. 
    Do you normally place your battery cover in the dryer every night?

    @Nikki
    I have exercised in my Sonnet and I just wipe off the battery cover with a damp cloth and then place in the UV dryer. Anytime I wear the Sonnet, I put it in the dryer along with the battery cover. 
    I usually use rechargeable batteries. I still haven't finished the box of disposables that came in my kit. 
    How many covers came in your kit? I got 3.

    Fingers crossed that you won't have any more chaos this month.

    @Jessica T
    Hi. Sorry that your daughter failed her hearing test. It sounds like it's just one ear that has a problem. I know that getting the results may have scared you, but I am sure you will get the necessary assurance from the experts in the field, who as @Mary Bethmentioned are the ENT specialist and the audiologist. Maybe a test like a CT scan will be required to get the full picture as to what is actually going on inside her ear.
    The sooner you see those professionals the sooner you will regain your peace of mind.
    Wishing you and yuur daughter well.

    I went to the activation this afternoon and it went really well.  The sound for the new side seems louder and more tinny than my old one but I understand that will improve.  The plus is I am able to understand speech with just the new side.  I am thrilled with that.  Initially my Audi was going to keep the processor off the ear but the incision does not hurt at all so I am trying it on the ear for now. Thanks for all the well wishes.  No to go through my new box of goodies.😀

    Jewel reacted to Mary Beth in ASM 3 question about mic settings   
    Hello @MED-EL Moderator
    Sonnet 2 and the upcoming Rondo 3 both use ASM 3 with adaptive intelligence.  I really liked the videos you released with Peter Nopp and your team explaining ASM 3 when the Sonnet 2 released.
     
    I have a couple of questions about ASM 3.
    1). Is it possible to have our audiologists create a MAP in ASM 3 that always uses one mic in the omnidirectional setting if we prefer that?
    2). Is it possible to have MAPs in different program slots at the same time with one MAP using omni always, one MAP using Adaptive Intelligence Mild and one MAP using Adaptive Intelligence Strong?  (This would be very helpful in allowing us to experiment with these mic settings in our real lives without needing to keep returning to our audiologists for a new mic setting.  Because hearing in our real lives is so much different than hearing in a test booth or at an appt.)
    3)  Does Adaptive Intelligence Strong setting use more battery power than omni/adaptive intelligence mild?
    4)  When we stream audio from the AudioLink, what happens to our mic setting?
    Thank you as always for your help.  I am very excited to try ASM 3.
  17. Thanks

    @Steven Ulven
    That's good. I remember sleeping in bed with about 6 pillows propping my head up postop. 
    Drinking lots of liquids should help with dry mouth feeling you're having. 
    Rest up and all the best with activation tomorrow.

    Good news and bad news 
     
    bad news: 2 processor CI centers in the US only apply to kits received with surgeries.  Upgrade kits for everyone is one processor per side.
     
    good news: Rondo 3 uses ASM 3 and adaptive intelligence with 2 mics to help in noise.  This is the very best help in noise just like on the Sonnet 2.

    Thank you for all of your responses Verena!  
     
    I understand about needing to wait until the fall for more pictures.  I am excited about Rondo 3 and think I may have just decided on my next processor!  
     
    Thank you again Med-El for listening to our concerns about possibly running out of battery power before long listening days are over.  I can not describe the relief I felt when I read about powering Rondo 3 up on the go while still using it!  Thank you!  Thank you!

    Hi all, 
    great to read that you are all excited about RONDO 3 - we are too and can't wait to make it available in fall  
    I've created a new category in the forum for RONDO 3, please find it here: https://forum.hearpeers.com/forum/43-rondo-3/
    Please let me know if you want me to move this conversation to the new category. 
     
    @Mary Beth great questions! Here are the answers from our product experts: 

    1. RONDO 3 does not have an integrated telecoil. However, telecoil adapter comes as an accessory in every user kit. Therefore, out users can still enjoy loop systems.
    2.  Regarding the internal chip: In a nutshell, yes. RONDO 3 uses a similar DSP chip.
     
     @Jewel RONDO 3 will be available starting this fall. I'd suggest you get in touch with us or your local MED-EL rep about a webinar/webchat opportunity and we'll do our best to arrange something  
     
    If you have any further questions, please let me know! 
    Best regards, Verena

    I don't usually have a problem where people can't hear me when i have the phone positioned by Rondo2 but I do understand your predicament. 
    What gets me is when I position the phone to where Rondo2 usually is and I'm wearing the Sonnet. I'm like why am I not hearing anything??? Cracks me up all the time. My magnet is positioned slightly above my ear.

    Yup it peeled off.  You can see part of one of the triangles.  I think the Rondo 2 ships with strength 3 typically.  Maybe your audiologist has the magnet strength in her records.
